One Week Old Beauty! (Winnipeg Newborn Photographers)

Leave a comment

This little beauty came to see me today for her first photography session. Her mom told me that she usually slept most of the day, but she didn’t feel like sleeping this morning! She made us work for each pose, but in the end we got some wonderful images; especially of her beautiful, big eyes wide open. I love the one featured here where she’s smiling.

Sometimes the cutest ones make me work the hardest!

Our Two Sons! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

I’ve been doing family pictures for this family for the past few years and these boys just keep getting cuter! Last night we did our session at Kildonan Park, in the beautiful  flower gardens. Two-year old M, was absolutely adorable; posing and smiling for me. His little brother was not as keen, but we got some great shots of him as well.

Have a look at these 2 beautiful boys!

It was baby L’s six month session but her 2-year old sister was ready to pose for me as well, and wanted me to take her picture.

I had a great time with these 2 at Kildonan park last night.

Here’s a preview of  these Two Beautiful Dolls!

What better gift to give a parent on their 80th birthday than a photograph of the family? I think it’s a great idea and my long time friend Heather thought so too! We did this session last night at Bunn’s Creek Park. Aren’t they a great looking group of people?

Here’s a sneak peek at a few favorites from last night.

 

My Two Sons! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

This lucky mom convinced her sons to come to the park to get their pictures taken on the first day of school. I think this is a great idea and would have loved to have had this kind of memory keeper with my own two sons. Kids grow up in the blink of an eye and it would be wonderful to have images such as these to look back on.

Here are 2 of my favorites:

Lights, Camera, Editing, Portraits!


This is a repeat of an article in my last newsletter. I am including it for my new clients and am also adding some information to it.

It is very important to me that you love the images from your session. I will do my utmost from the beginning of our correspondence to you’re receiving your order to make sure that you are happy with the experience and the result. To that end, I want to explain the steps in the whole process.

  1. You come for your portrait session.
  2. I put a few of your images on my blog.
  3. I do an initial editing of your images. This is often called a “soft editing”. It involves colour correction, some clean up of the background, lightening if needed and cropping. At this point, your images will not be completely edited, except for the ones on my blog.
  4. You receive a password protected gallery to review your proofs.
  5. You send your order to me by email.
  6. I do a full editing of the images that you ordered. This involves a full background clean up, removing blemishes, smoothing skin, brightening eyes, head swaps if needed, and further corrections for colour and brightness. You can preview these images after I have worked on them if you like. Once you are happy with them:
  7. You receive an invoice from me, make payment and pick up your order or have it mailed to you.

I accept payment by cash, cheque, interac e-transfer, credit cards and Paypal.

This is the most time efficient way for me to operate. Most galleries have between 20 and 50 images in them. It only takes  me a few minutes to do the “soft edit”, whereas the final edit might take 20 minutes. The soft edit includes correcting lighting and colour, as well as cropping and some skin corrections. The final edit involves a full clean up of the backdrop and more skin corrections.

You can see the progression in the images below. The first image is straight out of the camera. In the first soft edit, I lightened it, cropped it and did some colour corrections. In the final completely edited image, I straightened the floor, make the wrap more symmetrical, took some red out the babies skin, removed some of the shadow around the babies head on the left and burned the edges of the floor. The first edit didn’t take long but the final one took me about 20 minutes.

Aren’t these twins cute! They were super sleepy babies as well. I loved every minute of this session!



And Finally

Isn’t this the truth? What other record will we have that we lived? Only printed images will survive the test of time and be there for future generations to see.


Yours in Photography,

Christina

They don’t get any cuter than this one month old baby girl! Little Miss G was awake for the whole session but was happy for most of it. We got some great images of her with different backdrops.

Here are 3 of them.
